“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport again topped the list of being the world’s busiest airport, catering to over 100 million passengers in 2016. Of course, being as busy as it is, it should be well-equipped with the usual demands of hungry and impatient passengers. Before it became an airport giant, it used to have only shabby food courts for on-the-go passengers. Now, it became its own culinary hub for housing some awesome indoor restaurants. Here are the best restaurants at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Grindhouse Killer Burgers
If you can’t stand the long lines at Chick-fil-A, Grindhouse Killer Burgers is an excellent alternative dining spot. They’re called Killer Burgers because their burgers are to die for – literally. They’re made with fresh beef, turkey, and veggies stacked in fresh potato buns. You can also make your own combination or simply choose among their bestsellers. Vegan customers will enjoy their veggie patties here as well.
One Flew South
You don’t need to go to Michelin-starred restaurants and luxury hotels just to have a taste of world-class food. Hartsfield-Jackson International has One Flew South. Even though non-chain restaurants have been opening up left and right in the airport, it still remains one of the best. Their culinary offerings are so good, this is easily one of the best restaurants at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport by far.
Jekyll Island Seafood Company
If you’re craving fresh seafood in between flights, head over to Concourse F for comforting bites of Georgia coast specialties. Their seafood menu is impressive and surprisingly light, but it’s enough to curb your growling hunger and sour mood while waiting for your delayed flight. Some of their best menu picks include the seafood gumbo, shrimp and grits, and fresh oysters.
One Of Our Favorite Best Restaurants at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport – Chicken+Beer
Fried chicken will always have a soft spot in our hearts; so much so, in fact, that even though this restaurant is way over in Concourse D, passengers don’t mind going all the way there while dragging their big bags with them. This restaurant’s success is also owed partially to its famous endorser, rapper Ludacris, though mainly it’s all about their two-piece chicken and chicken and waffles.
